Below, I share with you a love theme, by this fantastic group, entitled "Haja o que houver" (Whatever happens), and its lyrics. Enjoy!



Lyrics:

Haja o que Houver

Haja o que houver
Eu estou aqui
Haja o que houver
espero por ti

Volta no vento ô meu amor
Volta depressa por favor
Há quanto tempo, já esqueci
Porque fiquei, longe de ti
Cada momento é pior
Volta no vento por favor...

Eu sei quem és
pra mim
Haja, o que houver
espero por ti...

Há quanto tempo, já esqueci
Porque fiquei, longe de ti
Cada momento é pior
Volta no vento por favor

Eu sei quem és
pra mim
Haja, o que houver
espero por ti...


Whatever Happens

Whatever happens,
I am here,
Whatever happens,
I will wait for you.

Come back with the wind; oh, my love
Come back in haste, please
How long? I have forgotten,
Why I stayed away from you
Each moment is worse,
Come back with the wind, please...

I know who you are
To me,
Whatever happens
I will wait for you...

How long? I have forgotten,
Why I stayed away from you,
Each moment is worse,
Come back with the wind, please...

I know who you are
To me,
Whatever happens
I will wait for you...

    Não conhecia o grupo, mas achei muito bom, é bom ouvir músicas que são poesias que possuem conteúdo e não só uma repetição sem sentido de palavras.

    Um maravilhoso final de semana para você.

  7. Oh Max...She has a velvet voice and impresses the listener (it's me :P)and takes away somewhere i have never been, i have never known...Thanks a lot Max for introducing me with this great song and great lyrics...

    And i want you to listen "The Music Played" from Matt Monro. He effects me a lot and i'm sure you'll love it, as well. It's a great nostalgie!
    Here's the lyrics

    An angry silence lay where love had been
    And in your eyes a look I'd never seen
    If I had found the words you might have stayed
    But as I turned to speak, the music played

    As lovers danced their way around the floor
    I sat and watched you walk towards the door
    I heard a friend of yours suggest you stayed
    And as you took his hand, the music played

    Across the darkened room the fatal signs I saw
    You'd been something more than friends before
    While I was hurting you by clinging to my pride,
    He had been waiting and I drove him to your side

    I couldn't say the things I should have said
    Refused to let my heart control my head
    But I was made to see the price I paid
    And as he held you close, the music played

    And as I lost your love, the music played.

    Hugs and kisses...

    "Oh Max...She has a velvet voice and impresses the listener (it's me :P)and takes away somewhere i have never been, i have never known...Thanks a lot Max for introducing me with this great song and great lyrics..."

    Yes, she does have a velvety voice! LOL I am glad she impressed you ;)! It's my pleasure, girl; besides if the song transported you to a different place, I must say that posting this was worthwhile :D!

    "And i want you to listen "The Music Played" from Matt Monro. He effects me a lot and i'm sure you'll love it, as well. It's a great nostalgie!"

    Let me check it on youtube: wow...it is a beautiful music indeed! And its lyrics reflects conquer and at the same time tension, jealousy...love, regret...very good!

    Burcu, thank you so much for having shared this song and lyrics with me! Loved it :D!

  21. Hi Max…

    Wow! What a pretty piece!

    Very nice hair style again!

    It has a melancholy feel to it…which seems to move one to introspection….

  22. Hi LS!

    "Wow! What a pretty piece!"

    It is, isn't it? :D

    "Very nice hair style again!"

    Oh yes...it is emulating the 20's...gorgeous!

    "It has a melancholy feel to it…which seems to move one to introspection…."

    But of course, it speaks of lovers who are apart...what else could be expected? Indeed...LS...indeed...I like your sensitiveness to music.

    LS, thanks for this incredible comment :D!
